Just Finished Seven Summits And Selling New and Used Gear

Postby chapter11 » Sun Jan 01, 2012 11:19 pm

Just finished the Vinson Massif in Dec (the last of my Seven Summits) and am looking to retire from mountaineering.

Will be posting equipment up from time to time - Here is the first lot of items. Will look to try and sell here over the next few weeks before resorting to Ebay.

1) New with Tags - Mountain Hardware Absolute Zero Mitt Size Medium - $100
2) New with Tags - Black Diamond Guide Gloves Size Medium - $125
3) New (without tags) - Outdoor Research Expedition Crocodile Gaitors in Size Extra Large - $60
4) Used Mint (5 days on Denali) MSR Denali Snow Shoes Adult Size (no extensions) - $100
5) Used Mint (1 day on Denali - Windy Corner) Tracer Climbing Helmet Size Large - $50

Pics available upon request. Email me sgrischow@gmail.com with any questions. Stay Tuned for rest of gear.

I'm in the market for a pair of ascenders if you have any left that you didn't wear out jugging to the top of the world. Oh and I'd be interested in buying that rope your crew is standing on in one of your three photos from your epic adventures. I need to make a rug.

Congrats on your "achievement"


Thanks for the note, dude - the grapes must be really sour this time of year in your neck of the woods.....

Unless you can show me otherwise all of those prices are well below MSRP - even for the NWT equipment.......

Probably need to upgrade your monitor - no one is stepping on a rope in that Denali ridge photo.....

Keep up the positive attitude - it will take you a long way!!!

love this thread BUT its gotta stop.
"chapter" if you want to get rid of youre gear better post at mountain project thay a better FS board much more alive than this one.
(no offence SPers if you even can be offended by saying it but i get all my used gear from MP) esspecially for tons of gear like you have.
if you want to get rid of allot at once i think posting pics goes a REALLY long way make some kind of a discounting system based on shipping or sets.
here check this out notice how much gear he sold
http://www.mountainproject.com/v/fs-bd- ... /107247155

p.s.
i dont know about msrps of the gear you posted but im not buying any glove for 120$ for a another climber i might as well go to the store and pick out somthing i like better.

yikes. for a 4 post member, blackhound is a jerk.

prices are a little high, but there is no need for so much hostility.

congrats on the 7 summits. Great achievement.

Have a nice day.



Blackhound -

Woops - I will have to forward this to my Denali team - I missed that rope step in the pic. I apologize.

Also - that is some great research you did on the stuff I posted up initially - since you seem to have so much time on your hands perhaps I send you a list of the rest of the gear and you can continue your research? Interested? Apologies to the group if the prices were inflated - shoot me an offer if you are interested.

Nope - I had already sold the down that I used on Denali - I do have a Marmot 8000M (size medium) that I just bought last month for Vinson.

Why "retire" from climbing after the 7 summits? There are thousands of other interesting peaks out there.

Because he's a trophy hunter, not a climber. The sport will be better off without him.

Why not close one chapter and start on a new chapter in life's journey. Maybe he wants to start a family, sail around the world? Why does it matter?
